Re: Photo taking on the playa

Possible solutions, you can move to where you aren't facing the light. This doesn't always work because sometimes the shot is where you right then are, so another solution is to shade the camera lens with your hand or a hat or a large umbrella or whatever is handy. But if it is too bright because yo...

Re: Fertility 2.0 meaning

I wish that they had chosen something other than Fertility 2.0. Makes it sound like a bad upgrade from a softwhere manufacturer.
Wouldn't it be nice if the theme had been Rebirth instead. means the same thing, but sounds way cooler to me.

Re: The Syncytium Maze

I like this idea.

Greek Heroes like to slaughter first and ask questions later (as well as ravishing beautiful maiden...

@MPUN, Has it been the full and requisite forty two days since you first applied for the low income ticket (LIT)? If so, email them. Unless I am mistaken they are pretty busy in the LIT crypt, reading, analyzing, arguing, laughing, and accepting or rejecting applications. In my case, I waited a coup...

Re: Half Dome lottery application statistics - a model for B

Hopefully the Borg won't do another lottery, but if they do, yes, something like this would be nice. Next time I predict the Borg will have a giant "Dancing with the Stars" type event. That's right, we will have to gambol for tickets.

Re: Half Dome lottery application statistics - a model for B

I thought that the Half Dome Lottery System was put into place because safety was being compromised by crowding along the cable (especially on holiday weekends) and the National Park Service would get sued by families of the deceased.
